Rufous Hummingbird

This photo of a Rufous Hummingbird was taken on June 28th, 2011 at Ecola State Park in Oregon.  No, they don'tnormally pose for me like this!  I was using "fill-flash" here, a touch of flash to brighten up shadowed areas, and every once in a while it startles a bird.  That's what happened here...the flash went off, and he fluttered his wings a bit.  Taken with Canon 50D, 400 5.6L.

Rufous Hummingbird - Selasphorus rufus
